Police Close Beaver Stadium Child Endangerment Investigation

Police have stopped investigating a decade-old child endangerment case that was first reported last week.

A visitor reported to police last Monday that he witnessed a boy calling for help from a Beaver Stadium bathroom on either Aug. 10 or Aug. 11, 2005. The witness told police that two adult men then emerged from the bathroom with the young boy. The men told the witness that everything was okay.

Penn State Police Chief Tyrone Parham said they closed the investigation after police were unable to identify anyone who was reported to have been involved in the incident. Parham said the investigation will remain closed unless any new information about the case is reported to police.

“We just don’t have any more information to go on at this point,” Parham said.

The man did not report the incident at the time, and police couldn’t confirm why he waited so long to report the incident.

The band finished its set at the Phyrst last semester and “Build Me Up Buttercup” came on over the speakers. Most people continued with their conversations as usual, but I turned and glanced at at the dance floor. There were my parents, dancing in each other’s arms to the song that they used to dance to years ago at the Gaff.
